Beaten to the punch on "Where The Wind Blows." Now that is extraordinary. So sad, yet with a great deal of quiet dignity, and no mawkishness whatsoever.

I guess this must be a youngish crowd, at least from where I'm sitting.
I have to agree that Fantasia is a masterpiece of a movie, but my favourite for purely great animation has to be Disney's "Pinochio". Disney studios at their peak.
Also, anything by the Wallace and Gromit crowd, including "Chicken Run", but alot of that may be due to the homage paid to "The Great Escape"

Regarding Disney's Robin Hood....
My Dad loved that movie, and I loved watching it with him, so it's on my list. I used to cry at the same scene, now I cry variously thru the whole thing, (except the funny parts) because I miss my Dad.

Allegro non Troppo - Brunno Bozzetto's crazed 1977 send-up of Fantasia is astonishing to behold. Like Fantasia, it's a series of animated segments set to classical music with live-action bits as a framing device, but from there things diverge wildly as the narrator - think an combination car salesman and con man (or is that redundant?) wearing a horrifically bad suit - holds forth on the originality of the film (while rejecting the supposed efforts of this Bisney character), before a small mob of old little Italian ladies tromp in to act as orchestra before a long suffering animator who is chained to his desk by a brutish conductor. But, inspired live-action gags aside, the real star here is the animation which alternates between whimsical, leering, caustic, madcap, and even poignet. Highlights include a complete history of evolution (sparked by an abandoned Coke bottle) set to "Bolero", a tear-jerker about a starving cat using "Valse Triste" to great effect, and the frantic finale. Highly recommended, especially for the Fantasia fan interested in seeing a good-natured parody of a holy cow. There's an excellent R1 DVD release courtesy of HVE that also includes a slew of Bozzetto's shorts; I'm particularly fond of "Self Service", about a bunch of hungry mosquitos.

I've got a ton of favorites, but the only one I can think of that hasn't already been mentioned is Nelvana's 1983 sleeper "Rock and Rule". Way ahead of its time, nearly bankrupted the company. Finally available on DVD.
